STASIS Q1 Milestones Report

Check out the new summary of our latest achievements

Missed us, dear clients? We’re back! Instead of the usual Month in Review digest, where the team behind STASIS and EURS shares our updates from the past month and some thoughts on key events and issues in the cryptocurrency and stablecoin space, we decided to come up with a full-scale review on the last few months and give you a broader outlook on our current accomplishments. Enjoy reading!

As for the future, the Month in Review will still be distributed each month initially as a newsletter. You can sign up to receive it here.

The Great Shift Onwards. What’s next: Web 3 or WW3?

Exactly two years ago, the world faced an extraordinary test of strength and endurance. Once-a-century pandemics have hampered the businesses, plans, and dreams of ordinary Joe. Today, the world stays at the very gates of unforeseen consequences and inevitable outcomes. The situation is critical and the world’s sentiment is exceptionally negative.

As the world transcended into 2022, everyone was expecting another Xmas miracle to happen and uplift their profits in crypto to unprecedented heights. However, miracles are quite rare these days.

The digital asset field is a chaotic realm, and grasping the power play under the lines takes a lot of time and effort while being rarely rewarding. The reality check during the winter months helped many traders get back to Earth.

Despite the firm’s winter’s severe volatility, the latest Visa survey indicated that 25% of small businesses are ready to start accepting crypto in 2022. Global credit giant states that nearly a quarter of small and micro enterprises plan to begin accepting crypto assets as payments this year.

In the meantime, Bank of America crypto strategists said stablecoin adoption and CBDC are ‘inevitable’. The United States will finally be moving forward to create its own central bank digital currency in the form of the CBDC. Crypto strategists Andrew Moss and Alkesh Shah wrote in a Monday note that CBDCs “are an inevitable evolution of today’s electronic currencies,” according to a Bloomberg report.

Up or down, Bitcoin’s most hardcore fans, MicroStrategy, will continue investing in BTC no matter what. Although the value of this blue chip has fallen significantly in recent months, the company intends to continue investing in the digital asset, despite a recommendation by the U.S. securities agency to amend the company’s disclosure in future filings.

Decentralized Finance took a serious hit alongside the crypto market as one of the worst and most surprising scandals in DeFi took place in January, when one of the revelations was too shocking to be true. Wonderland CFO Michael Patryn, treasury manager for the decentralized finance protocol Wonderland, turned out to be a former convict who co-founded the defunct Canadian exchange QuadrigaCX, another big-time crypto-hustle crime story. The perspectives of the investor-praised platform became blurry after that.

The DeFi sector has literally taken off into space the past year crypto staking rates are often high and can exceed 20%. Against the backdrop of near-zero Fed rates, this is more than attractive to traders. Hacks and exploits are inevitable followers of any emerging ecosystem. Since the beginning of the year, two major hacks have already taken place:the Qubit DeFi ($80 million) and Wormhole ($320 million) platforms.

Moreover, the largest in known history attack on DeFi took place in late March as the Ronin bridge and Katana Dex have been halted after suffering an exploit for 173,600 Ethereum (ETH) and 25.5 million USD Coins (USDC), worth a combined $612 million at current prices! The developers said they are “currently working with law enforcement officials, forensic cryptographers and our investors to make sure that all funds are recovered or reimbursed.

Traditional finance regulators can easily use this to win their case against innovative industry directions. Despite all the damage done to the industry’s reputation up to date, DeFi is here to stay, but events like this will undoubtedly impact the perception of transparency in the space.

We are here to guarantee that your on/off-ramp and journey in crypto won’t be impaired by volatility or questionable shady experience!

Considering the currently ongoing events as well as our global and diverse audience, we would like to express our support to the people whose lives have been affected by the war conflict. Our team is highly disturbed by the ongoing crisis on European soil and the resulting casualties.

We also hope that the current military crisis will be ended with minimal damage and devastation to the civilian population. We will continue to support our employees and clients to the best of our capacity, remaining an oasis of stability in turbulent times. We will march through it, coming through tougher and stronger after all the events. Peace to everyone!
